On Wednesday, December 5 at 5:00 p.m., the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in conjunction with the City of Orlando Families, Parks & Recreation Department, will host a Jr. Bucs Flag Football Clinic at Lake Lorna Doone Park in Orlando for 200 youth ages 8-14.
The participants, joining together from districts throughout Orlando, are members of the city's Youth Athletics Program. Each will receive instruction on fundamental flag football skills from NFL Flag certified instructors with support from mascot Captain Fear and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders. Buccaneers COO Brian Ford and City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer will be on hand for the clinic, which will include football stations, drills, and scrimmages. Approximately 100 youth will participate in the clinic from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m., with 100 additional youth participants taking part from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
The Jr. Bucs Flag Football Clinic will take place on the new NFL Play 60 field at Lake Lorna Doone Park. In 2017, the NFL provided the city, Florida Citrus Sports and LIFT Orlando with a Pro Bowl Community Grant as one of its many efforts to leave a positive legacy in the host city. The grant funds helped refurbish the multipurpose field outside the gates of Camping World Stadium, where high school teams from across the state will gather December 6-8 for the Florida High School Athletic Association Football State Championships.
